A Note From Our Pastor –
Welcome to the St. Patrick Catholic Church website. St. Patrick’s has been proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the heart of downtown Memphis for over 150 years. Whether you are an active parishioner or just visiting, we hope that you will find our parish information helpful in your faith journey. We are committed to living and proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ and the beauty of our Catholic faith. We are also blessed to have as our patron saint someone who calls us to continuing conversion and to reach out to others in charity and compassion. We invite you to join us in person at one of our Sunday Masses.
